Questions and Answers

Why is Embedthis Software supporting and distributing the GoAhead Embedded Web Server?

The GoAhead Web Server was originally written by Embedthis staff when working at GoAhead Software in 1998 and it remains a very popular web server to this day. With the acquisition of GoAhead Software Inc. by Oracle, Oracle asked Embedthis to support existing GoAhead Web Server customers and to provide ongoing development and commercial licenses for the GoAhead Web Server.

How does the GoAhead Web Server compare with Appweb?

The GoAhead Web Server is a simple, compact web server that has been widely ported to many embedded operating systems. Appweb is faster and more powerful — but requires more memory. If you need a simple, low end web server and have little memory available, the GoAhead Embedded Web Server is ideal. If you need higher performance and extended security, then Appweb is the right choice.

Is Embedthis enhancing the GoAhead Web Server?

Yes. Embedthis is continuing to develop GoAhead and has released a major upgrade in GoAhead version 3.

User Comments

Here are some comments from GoAhead users.

"I've looked at the source code and love it. Very crisp and to the point, no fluff. Well structured, great data structures, very portable, clearly the product of an expert programmer."

— Dwight Vandenberghe, Pentasoft Corporation

"We have carefully evaluated several existing open source Web servers suitable for embedded development. GoAhead Web server was by far the best solution. We managed to port it to ChorusOs and RTEMS in a few hours. That's the proof of a good design and careful coding. Wish your company all the best. Thanks for opening the code."

— Eric Valette Canon

"I've compiled GoAhead Embedded Web server on a number of platforms (vxWorks, Linux, Windows NT and LynxOS) and been highly impressed by the simplicity and speed of installation. We use the embedded platforms mentioned above for data acquisition systems in science experiments; your product could provide an ideal method for simple monitoring and control of elements of the system. The small footprint and straightforward scripting capabilities are ideal for such applications."

— Tim Nichols, Real Time Systems Group
